Northren Ontario,Northren Brewery Outlet. I bought this out of curiosity and desperation. I was pleasently surprised. I wish I could find it again, found it ver flavourful and refreashing during the Stanely Cup final. I miss hockey and Catfish Cream Ale

We were impressed with the deep-rooted natural beer flavour, and found it tasted best in a shaker.
Disappointed with the claim to be a Manitoba beer but brewed in Ontario. Any beer named Catfish definitely should be brewed in Manitoba (catfish capital of the world). Canít fool a brew drinker...bring back Truth in Advertising!

Originally rated August 2005. Had this one at the Pub Italia on Preston street in Ottawa, Ontario. Poured a golden honey amber colour with a small head and amount of lacing. The carbonation was lively. The nose and taste were both light in fruit, like peach. Also found in the taste was grain malt and a clean finish. The mouthfeel was creamy and almost sandy, in a way. Overall, a very well-brewed beer with very nice peachy taste and aromas, and a good first experience with Agassiz brewery.

As cream ales go, pretty good. Nice pour, with typical cream ale look and mouth feel.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 Franchise brewed for Agassiz ( Now New Manitoba Brewering. A moderately hard pour put a light copper ale in the glass with a modest frothy cap that lasted well enough....good lacing on the glass....soft carbonation allows the falvor profile to develop on the palate. Aroma was pleasant ; sweet toasted malts over fruity yeast esters and woody hoppiness. Mouth feel is on the thin side of medium bodied, creamy in texture and very smooth and mellow in profile delivery. Taste is well balenced and reminisant of a traditional cream Ale with sweet roasted caramel malts played off against the woody-herbal hops and distinct cidery-fruity yeast by broducts....finish is wet with a light bittering and a caramel after taste. This is the first mass produced Cream ale that I have tasted that is fairly true to this uniqely Canadian traditional style and verrrry drinkable...I like it..has everything a session ale/lager needs..good flavour, satisfying and drinkable....very much in the same nicheí as Robert Simpson ale. Iíll buy more for sessions and get togethers. Northern has proven it can make a good mass produced super premium beer with Red Maple, Edelbrau and now, Catfish.

Bottled. Nice copper color with a respectable head. Goes down easily enough. Would probably make a good session beer, has some body to it, yet thin at the same time.

This was my first beer from this brewery, had on tap at C'est What in Toronto. I generally am not a fan of "cream ales", due to its lack of hops and flavour (to my palette) but I found this one more enjoyable than most. It had a slightly fruity taste that I don't usually associate with this style of beer. Better than expected, but not a threat to enter my regular rotation.

Slightly sweaty feet stepping on caramel apples...Chewy smoke and metallic tinge under nice lacing...Creamy, minty, little hops and ashes turn to a fizzy void in the end...
